Router Tools

Get the perfect finish with a wood router from Toolstation. Routers are woodworking tools used to make joints, hollow out materials and create sharp edges or grooves. They’re used for cutting out, making duplicates from a pattern, decorative surface cuts and more. While they are most commonly used in woodworking, they can also trim and rout plastic, metal and laminate.

What Do Routers Do?

The word ‘rout’ means to hollow out, and this is one of their primary functions. While they specialise in making patterns in wood, creating edges and cut-outs, their many uses include carving dado rails, picture frames and cabinetry, or shaping patterns for doors, chair rails, windows, bannisters and baseboards.

What Are the Different Types of Routing Tools?

Plunge routers allow controlled vertical movement during cutting. This is ideal for precision tasks such as fluting, edge profiling, engraving and grooving. Fixed base routers are good all-rounders and offer a stable foundation for jobs that need a steady hand. The main difference between the two is the position of the cutter. The former plunges into the wood while the latter is fixed in position. Biscuit jointers are a type of router used to make holes and grooves in wood and create joints to bind them together. Toolstation stocks a wide range of router tools from brands such as Trend, Festool and DeWalt.
